A place where alcoholics go to get sober. As there is much talk of "God" and a "Higher Power," A.A. is often mistaken as a religious program. However, it is NOT religious, but in fact a SPIRITUAL program. It consists of 12 steps and 12 traditions. The main text of A.A. is the book of Alcoholics Anonymous, often referred to as the "Big Book." A.A. is a fellowship of men and women who seek sobreity through spirituality VIA the 12 step program.
Sorry, Martha, I can't go to the bar tonight because I'm going to A.A. to drink coffee and smoke cigarettes instead of drinking Ol' Grandad and smoking a J.
Come on, Reginald! Let's go to an A.A. meeting so we can stay sober today!
